  • Doggies - for Gill

    Gill, I promised one of my next projects would be doggies instead of kitties - so here it is: 'Peeping Pups' plaque with a hook to hang the canines' leashes and harnesses
    3 mm MDF on 16 mm MDF backing, painted
    and yes... I am still on the painted MDF 'kick'

      I hope it isn't only for Gill!

      I love it. They look full of mischief and seem to say "Won't you take us out for a walk?"

      It's the type of reaction I get from my two German Shepperd if I happen to even brush their leash accidentally while walking by. A sort of time stopping expectation feeling.

      Thanks for sharing,

        Thanks Steve, yes it is...

        Marcel, I had a tough time taking the photo earlier, my two Jackies saw me taking the leash and harness and would not leave me alone for a minute...yapping, begging to go walk and jumping up to grab it off the hook. In the end I had close them in so I could get the photo done!

          Ohhh.... it's lovely !

          I recognise that keen look of expectation only too well; it was usually accompanied by lots of jumping up and down, spinning around while I tried to harness them. It was like trying to harness the wind !

          How on earth did you get the pups to pose like that while you drew them ?

            I love it. That is really a neat idea. You can't copyright ideas, can you?

              Really nice, Sue. I like the dog lead hanger idea.

              I've seen that somewhere before - Yesterday I just added that to my list of patterns to order next from Wooden Teddy Bear - hadn't realises it was yours .. thought I guess that's what the SM on the code is

              Is the pattern for the cat breaking out of a box that you posted a couple of weeks ago available for sale?

                Ian, all my patterns are handled by WTB, you can email and ask them for the title 'Peeping Kitty'.

                Gill, it took many "beenos" and other titbits, but I managed in the end (wink)

                  I thought my dogs were the only ones that went crazy whenever I pulled their harnesses out of the drawer! I practically have to shut one in a different room so I can put the harness on the other one they get so excited. That is a cute pattern, I'll have to make something like that for my dogs.

                        Linda - Here is my gimmick for the Incra 1000SE on my SS CNS. I scratched a line 3/4-inch in from the blade end of the fence. I then use a ruler to set that line 1-inch from the side of a carbide tooth on the blade. Then I line the 1-inch mark on the fence ruler to the scratch line.

                        It was a tough choice on the miter gauges---based on recommendations here. I researched the Kreg and the Incra. They were pretty much tied. I let fate decide it. Went into my nearest 2 hardwood stores. #1 sold Kreg, but they were out of stock and didn't know when an order would come in that...

                        Nice puzzle. Go for the gusto---scroll it next time!! Several of the quality brands of blades make blades just for acrylics. With a sharp blade and the right speed it's all good.
